america’s top tv critic matt roush answers your burning questions

@TVGMMattRoush What to do about Netflix and its decision to cancel One Day at a Time? I don’t understand what they based this on. This is the one reboot that is not only as good as the original—it’s even better! What is the likelihood another network, even a broadcast network, will pick up a show that already has three seasons under its belt? —Felicia MATT ROUSH: To quote the show’s legendary creator, Norman Lear: “At my age [96], I can testify you are never too old to have your heart broken.” This cancellation hurts more than most—not just because the show is terrific, but for its depiction of underrepresented Latinx and LGBTQ characters and its sensitive yet humorous handling of issues including addiction and depression. Netflix expressed regret that “not enough people…

FINALE PREDICTIONS On the final episode of The Big Bang Theory, the gang is going out to dinner and sees the elevator has been repaired. They get in, the door closes, the indicator shows it going down and then it stops between floors. The End. —Janet HEARTFELT TRIBUTE I’m still in shock at the passing of Luke Perry [March 4]—a brilliant actor. —Becky WEDDED BLISS The [March 17] episode of NCIS: Los Angeles with Kensi and Deeks getting married had all of what makes [the show] shine after 10 seasons—bad guys, action and humor. The best thing, which had me choked up, was seeing Hetty again! I hope she is back to stay with this totally wonderful group. —Ellen BIG FACE-OFF If the challenge on Buddy vs. Duff is baking, I must say, “May the best baker…

big moves ahead!

ON APRIL 5, Today’s popular fourth hour celebrates its 11th anniversary—and also loses one of its irrepressible hosts, Kathie Lee Gifford. After a decade-plus of sitting side-by-side with Hoda Kotb, as well as 15 years (1985–2000) on Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee, Gifford is signing off from daytime TV. The energetic 65-year-old decided to leave the NBC morning show to focus on films, a series of Hallmark movies and songwriting, her self-described “greatest passion.” She’s already started a film production company that’s wrapped Then Came You, a romantic comedy with Craig Ferguson in which she stars as a widow. “The films will be honest, hopeful, hysterical and heartfelt,” she promises. We talked to Gifford about her long-reaching career. Why leave now? Two years ago, I told NBC I’d stay one…

er: where are they now?

IT’S TOUGH TO believe a full decade has gone by since ER, NBC’s groundbreaking medical drama, aired its final episode on April 2, 2009. for 15 seasons, viewers were swept into the frenetic hallways of Chicago’s fictional County General hospital for a realistic gurney’s-eye view of doctors and patients in the throes of every imaginable form of physical and emotional trauma. it was gritty, gripping and a huge hit, spending multiple years at the top of the ratings and winning 23 primetime Emmys. And while the series may be gone, its impact can still be felt—especially since former cast members continue to crop up all over television. here’s where you can find just a small sampling of the alumni. JULIANNA MARGULIES (Nurse Carol Hathaway) Stoic Carol was a fan favorite for six…

is pauley perrette returning to tv?

IT’S BEEN NEARLY a year since Pauley Perrette put down her last giant soda on CBS’s NCIS. But the fan favorite is taking steps toward returning to the network this fall—in a comedy. The actress, who played forensic specialist Abby Sciuto for 15 seasons on the drama, has been cast in the pilot for the sitcom Broke, from executive producers Alex Herschlag (Will & Grace) and Jennie Snyder Urman (Jane the Virgin). As a feisty bar manager and single mother, she reluctantly takes in her snobby estranged sister (Another Period’s Natasha Leggero) and ridiculously wealthy brother-in-law (Jaime Camil, another Jane alum) after the couple burns through his trust fund and is cut off by his father. CBS should announce in May if the pilot will be picked up to series. A comedy…
